Restored former shop
Rebuilt in 1916, this fabulous period home and former village shop occupies an enviable position in the centre of the picturesque village of Hartest.
Sitting in grounds of around two acres (subject to survey), the property fronts the village green and has rural views to the rear.
It offers a deceptive amount of spacious, versatile accommodation as well as outbuildings within the grounds.
An entrance porch leads to the generous hallway, with wooden flooring, stairs to the first floor and doors to the principal rooms.
The sitting room is a light room with views across the green, with its focal point a brick fireplace (not currently used) and chimney breast.
The kitchen/family room is an inviting space in which to gather and entertain.
The family area features a fireplace and has French doors leading outside.
The farmhouse styled kitchen overlooks the rear garden and is fitted with a range of wall and base units with wooden worktops.
There is an inset butler sink, a built in double oven, hob and extractor hood. A separate utility room has space for a fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine.
There is also a cloakroom and a rear lobby/boot room with access to the garden.
On the first floor the large landing gives access to the five bedrooms (one ensuite) and a family bathroom.
To the rear of the property is a paved and decked terrace. Steps lead to the formal garden, with a brick and weather boarded outbuilding.
The orchard is enclosed by hedging and leads to the meadow and outbuildings, including a large Nissan hut and a workshop.
Behind this is a greenhouse, a chicken coop and an older style static caravan.
The rear track provides valuable vehicular access to the grounds.
